Long Description:
På den lille limfjordsø Fur står dette fyrtårn på den nordvestlige kyst. Der har været fyrtårn på øen siden 1911 og det er den samme familie der gennem tre generationer har passet fyret. Det gamle fyrtårn (der mere lignede et lille hus) blev erstattet i 2007. Det nuværende tårn er faktisk det nederste af en højspændingsmast med en metalkappe udenpå i hvid og rød, så det også fungerer som sømærke. Øverst sidder en glødelampe der udelukkende bruger el.

On the little island in the Limfjorden inlet this little lighthouse is located on the North Western coast side. There has been a lighthouse on the island since 1911 and it is the same famlily through three generations who have been lightsmen. The old lighthouse, which actually more looked like a little house, was replaced by a new tower in 2007. The present tower is the ower part of a power pylon covered by a metal sheet in white and red. It also works as a seamark. At the top there is an incandescent lamp which only uses elctricity.
